The Heat is Turned Up for the June 2018 Auction Calendar

The summer heat is now officially in upon us and this month sees a fiery line up of auction dates to highlight. Borro Blog has focused on three key auctions taking place for our June 2018 auction calendar from highly collectable Aston Martins to a contemporary art evening featuring artwork from Bacon, Warhol and Basquiat amongst other high-profile artists.

Bonham’s Aston Martin Sale

2nd June – Reading, England

Bonham's Aston Martin Sale 18

The Aston Martin Sale will take place at Englefield House in Reading and with the sale dedicated to one of Britain’s proudest luxury brands, this will truly be a great summertime affair.

The auction will feature countless memorabilia and classic cars collected throughout the 20th century. Potentially the most desirable and prized lot on offer is the cream coloured 1965 Aston Martin DB5.

It is thought to be the penultimate of 85 manufactured right hand DB5 convertibles; it features a roaring 4.2 litre engine. This British engineering masterpiece has high estimate of £900,000.

Christie’s Important Jewels

June 13 – London, England

June 2018 Auction Calendar

Christie’s Important Jewels sale is always a highly anticipated occasion leading to packed auction rooms, and this one is sure to be no different.

There are some extremely valuable precious gemstones up for grabs. However, for this sale all eyes will be fixed upon lot number 277, when the ‘Fine Sapphire and Diamond Julie’ Cartier ring is offered.

The lot offers a cushion-shaped sapphire, weighing in at approximately 7.10 carats accompanied by circular cut diamonds and sealed by a Cartier signed ring. However, you better know your ring size before you splash out the £650,000 estimated price on June 13th, as it is only available as a ring size J.

Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Evening Auction on June 26

26th June – London

Sotheby's Contemporary Art Evening Auction June 26

This is certainly the standout art auction for June and will act as a large tell-tale as to how the second half of the year will pan out for the art market.

No official estimates have yet been released, however, with original works from Keith Haring, Francis Bacon, Basquiat, Klein and Andy Warhol are all on offer, vast prices and highly competitive bidding can be expected.

This is without question an auction to pay attention to for those with an interest in the high end of the contemporary art market.
